Default Using Slave Flash Starblitz with a Oly C-700

Help needed over here :lol:

I have a Olympus C-700 and a Slave Flash Starblitz 18GM
Problem is each shot I take with both flashes is pretty dark

Someone told me the problem is related to the camera's TTL system , wich I can't disable

Any suggestions ?

It's because the camera preflash , the external flash must be triggered at the main burst, not the first "preflash" burst
